6 Students with Disabilities Participation in State Assessments General assessment based on grade the student is in, or based on chronological age (which is consistent with birth dates of non-disabled peers)- not assigned grade level (ungraded) New York State Alternate Assessment (NYSAA) chronological age

8 Measuring what matters… The State Performance Plan  Graduation  Drop Out  State Assessments  Suspension  LRE  Parental involvement  Timely evaluations and services  Disproportionality  Preschool results  Post-school results

9 Levels of Intervention  In need of assistance  In need of intervention  In need of substantial intervention

10 As a result of our SPP…  We are going to know a lot more about a lot more areas for every school district.  When we know, we must act on that information.  We will be interacting with more school districts in different ways.  We must promote proactive improvement for the State to demonstrated improved results.

11 SPP Impact on…  Compliance identification and correction  Performance monitoring  Enforcement  Improvement activities

12 Targets  State must show improvement over the six years of the SPP  All compliance targets – 100% (or 0%)  Targets set to correspond to improvement activities  Realistic but rigorous

13 Enforcement  Based on information in the State Performance Plan, monitoring visits and any other public information made available, the State shall determine the level of intervention a school district needs. Needs assistance Needs intervention Needs substantial intervention

14 Levels of Intervention Self–improvement Needs assistance Needs Intervention Needs Substantial Intervention

15 Technical Assistance and Enforcement 1. Annual state targets for improvement 2. Public reporting of results – State and School Districts 3. Identification of and intervention with school districts for performance results 4. Focused monitoring – effective instructional practices 5. Directed technical assistance to schools
